After a long Instagram hiatus, Rihanna is back and better than ever. Of course, aside from the fact that she’s completely gorgeous, doesn’t care what people think and always immensely talented, it appears she brought back her social media page just in time to cause her fans to shed a little tear as she wishes her brother a happy birthday. Of course, most of us grow up hating our brothers, and she probably wished a time or two she was an only child herself, but that changes a bit as you grow up and realize that you’re one another’s best friend.
“Happy Birthday @gallest!!!! You’ve been inspiring the (expletive) that I am ever since we been climbing trees barefoot. Always wanted to be your brother, lol! Always doing the same phuck (expletive) you would do! We played like brothers and fought like brothers!!! I couldn’t have imagined that could love you as much as I do!!! You’re so important to me! I want you to always remember that! Happy Birthday to my first hitta, ever and forever!!! #MyBrother,” she posted on Instagram to wish her brother the happiest of birthdays.
Is anyone surprised that she would have rather been her brother’s brother than his sister? We’re guessing no, since she’s never really given the world the impression she cares about what anyone thinks, or that she’s overly concerned with fitting in – at all. Additionally, is anyone else imagining a much younger Rihanna climbing a tree in a pair of Louboutins and a Versace gown with cutouts and barely-there fabric to cover all her bits and pieces? Because we’re have a difficult time seeing her as a barefoot kid in the islands climbing trees and not walking the red carpet like a total pro. Someone bring on the tissues, because it’s true; she is a real person.
